£100,000-a-week premier League star told to join Newcastle after talks opened for January deal
Manchester United legend Roy Keane reckons it’s time Tottenham parted ways with Dele Alli – and urged him to go to Newcastle United
It was just a few seasons ago that Dele Alli was considered one of the most dangerous young players in the game, and not just in the Premier League.
But a large dip in form and constant changing of managers at Tottenham has meant that he has fallen so far down the pecking order that he does not even make the bench under Antonio Conte these days.
There has been many reports in the media that he would like to stay at the club and fight for his future with Spurs, but with the club seeking to invest in the squad this transfer window, they need to raise funds and make some room.
Meaning that the right offer will convince them to let Alli depart the club this transfer window, and now, reports have suggested that Newcastle are closing in on a transfer deal after opening talks for the Englishman
He was left out of the squad that lost to Chelsea in Sunday’s late kick-off amid speculation a move to Newcastle is on the cards, and ex-Manchester United skipper Roy Keane says Spurs should let him go to give him a chance to rejuvenate his career.
Keane told Sky Sports: “I think the kid’s lost the eye of the tiger. Sometimes you’ve got to let the kid go, that’s the nature of football.
“You’ve done your time here, you’ve obviously lost your way. (Tottenham should) be good to the kid and go ‘you’ve been a good signing for us’.
“Let the kid go. (He could go to) Newcastle, get his career going up there. The fans would love him if he comes in.”
Look, there is no doubt that ALli is a very a talented player that simply cannot get back to his best. So a change of clubs may be the best thing for him as he will get the chance to shine
Newcastle are in need of a player like Alli and if they can get the best out of him, they may have a player that could bang in or assist upto 20 goals a season
